Principal Civil Engineer / Associate Civil Engineer – Nuclear New-Build

Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin, is one of the world’s leading multi-disciplinary consultancy firms offering unparalleled opportunities for talented individuals in search of a rewarding career. Atkins’ Infrastructure business is looking for flexible and agile Principal and Associate civil and structural engineers to support our major nuclear new-build Clients around the UK in a range of exciting and unique design and construction projects.

The Infrastructure business provides multidisciplinary engineering services and integrated solutions across a wide range of building and infrastructure projects, leading the way in innovation, design transformation and digital engineering. Drawing upon a diverse skill set and with a proven track record of delivery we are playing a leading role in some of the world’s most challenging and exciting engineering projects. We pride ourselves in offering a truly multi-disciplinary working environment and bring exciting opportunities to influence a project from beginning to end. This position will form part of our national Design & Advanced Technology practice, with all the opportunities for collaboration that this brings, but with a specific focus on civil and structural engineering within the Energy and Defence markets.

These key posts will be largely based on our Client’s sites in the South-West of England and Scotland*, although we are also looking for engineers to join our office-based teams across the UK. The site-based roles are co-located multi-disciplinary design team, or in support of construction activities, and will offer a challenging and rewarding opportunity to apply knowledge, experience and problem-solving skills whilst providing good opportunities for career development. We are looking for practically minded and delivery focussed civil and structural engineers, particularly those with a nuclear sector background and experience in heavy civil engineering structures, external works, water retaining structures, design integration and design management.
